By Joe Rossignol on Jun 12, 2014

Flappy Bird might have taken the App Store by storm a few months ago, but I can think of a few smash-hit game franchises that launched much before that.

Infinity Blade III launches on the App Store

By Christian Zibreg on Sep 18, 2013

Infinity Blade has long been a so-called system seller, an iOS masterpiece meant to highlight the power of Apple’s iOS platform by taking the GPU inside your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to its limits.

Developer Chair said in July that Infinity Blades: Dungeons had been canceled due to internal reshuffling that saw the company focus on the third installment in the series, Infinity Blade III.

Infinity Blade Dungeons game officially canceled

By Cody Lee on Jul 12, 2013

Last March, Epic Games president Mike Capps took the stage at Apple’s iPad 3 event to show off Infinity Blade Dungeons, the studio’s third iteration in the popular series. And true to its predecessors, the game looked stunning—especially on the iPad’s new Retina display.
